Théophile Brunelle Homestead

Théophile Brunelle (1846 – 1924), was considered a hero in the township for his role in the legend of the wolf of Lafontaine. His homestead was built in 1870 at the end of Concession 17 in the Township of Tiny on 420 acres at the top of Nippissing Ridge. The Brunelle’s were married in 1867 and raised a family of 12 at this location.  The Homestead included livestock, pigs, chickens, and partridges. They also tended an orchard, a vegetable garden, and potato fields. For further information, please visit our Théophile Brunelle Homestead webpage.
